Microscopic Apollo 11 Moon Dust Sells for $500,000 at Bonhams Auctions

A tiny amount of microscopic moon dust sold for half a million dollars after NASA determined that the particles were part of the first lunar sample collected by Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong.

Bonhams auctioned Apollo 11 moon dust for $504,375 as part of the Space History sale held on Wednesday (April 13th) in New York. The amount, which included the buyer’s premium, was less than Bonham’s Pre-auction estimate from $800,000 to $1.2 million.
